Lorient vs Rennes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th December 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade du Moustoir (Lorient).
It’s not been an easy start for Lorient who will feel that they have played quite well for their standards and yet come into this match in 18th place.
Lorient are 2 points from safety and last weekend they lost against PSG. However they left Paris with their heads held high and only lost the game against their star studded opponents 2-0. The week before Lorient beat Nimes and they will come into this match in a good frame of mind.
At home though they have just 2 wins and that will need to improve if they are going to stay up this season.
Rennes have shown great form and had blips with poor form but they seem to be turning that around and they have won their last two games in a row.
The away side come into this match with 25 points in sixth place and victory here would put the club right back into the mix again. Perhaps Rennes could be accused of drawing too many games but they have also lost just 1 on the road. Their last away game ended in a 1-0 win over Nice.

Lorient vs Rennes: Prediction
Lorient have shown a lot of fight over the past 2-3 weeks and have been unlucky. Had luck gone their way they really would have more points.
Lorient has a chance here to upset the market and we think they are heading for victory. The price is good value and so just small stakes should be placed.
Rennes are a very good team but they lost some trust with customers last month, and we never know when they could go back on a losing run. This isn’t an easy fixture for them and they do not have a great recent record at this ground.
